Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Download on Demand

what you describe sounds like you are using OBS 2.1.

With OBS 2.3 this behavior should have been fixed.

Also, the new ARM HardFP rpm file extensions should be filtered
correctly from a unified multiarch primary.xml rpm metafile then.

Kind regards, Martin

I have been using this for a while and it works ok :

<download arch="i586" metafile="primary.xml" mtype="rpmmd"

However for arm I had an issue with :

<download arch="armv7el" metafile="primary.xml" mtype="rpmmd"

because the arch in the primary file was called "armv7l", I had to sed
replace it with armv7el and symlink the packages directory, otherwise
OBS rejected the primary.xml

That worked because it is a local repository, but would it make sense to
have another attribute to set the equivalent arch to look for in the
primary.xml for cases of remote repos ?

Hi all,

A few weeks (or is it months? I have no sense of time these days) ago,
I asked where the download-on-demand patch was and was provided with
it. But it failed to patch, so that leads me to my second question -
has it been merged into master?

IIRC, Marcus Hüwe completed the support.

Please try it via specifing the following in project meta data:

<download arch=.. baseurl=.. mtype=.. metafile=.. />

However, the backend support for this is disabled on

And when you got it working, I would be happy to receive a text for our
book :)
